Two Ohio state players were just arrested for kidnap and rape.
LSU and BAMA will lose their qb's so I don't know how they can be ranked that high.
FSU 26? I need someone to explain that.
Clemson should probably be 1.
I will reserve judgment on the gators.
Good to see UCF in top 20.

Burrow's successor - Myles Brennan - has been in the LSU program for a few years now. The former backup has yet to make a collegiate start - but that doesn't mean he doesn't have in-game experience.

Brennan's played in 15 games over three years for the Tigers. Over that span, the backup QB has completed 42-of-60 passes for 600 yards and two touchdowns as opposed to three interceptions.

Burrow's successor has yet to play meaningful snaps for LSU though. But Tigers head coach Ed Orgeron still has full-faith in LSU's 2020 starter.

FSU has an upgrade in coaching. Maybe that is why.

Gators should be good but their main problem is Georgia will be better.

And, I love the respect UCF gets at #18. UCF will be better this year than they were last year. Only lost a couple asst coaches, but backfilled with good ones. Randy Shannon still the DC. Heupel the head coach and OC. Dillon Gabriel 2nd year after breaking Daunte Culpepper's freshman qb records. Tons of talent coming back. UCF was young last year. Coaching staff will be better. 3rd year HC Heupel.

And, if you were wondering why no other schools have come after Coach Heupel...he has a 10 million dollar buy out... No more Scott Frost situations! Which is interesting to see Nebraska at #25. They sucked last year and weren't even bowl eligible.

The Canes have found a great Qb. Houston transfer D'Eriq King is probably the best Qb for this year. Surprised Oklahoma didn't pick him up. Glad to see him leave UCF conference mate Houston.

King is going to flourish with Rhett Lashlees air raid offense at Miami. Lots of talent surrounding him that prior coaches couldn't utilize. Entire O line returns. Miami's Defense is again ELITE. A lot of things lined up to pull him over OKL. This could be Manny's first successful season as the ball coach (last year 6-7 Lost to FIU and LATech) NC vs UCF that's a great game to start the year. Sam Howell is a serious threat with a solid w.r. room and a decent defense. The Coastal will come down to Miami NC this year. I wish Miami and UCF would just sign the home and home and lets kick this pig! but who knows when that will happen

Could be a couple good years with young talent like that maturing.
